Father Guido Sarducci? Maybe he's come up the ranks at the Vatican lately.

I can't think of any other candidates. I can think of an amazing writer who is a priest, though. Uwem Akpan is a Nigerian novelist and practicing Jesuit priest. He wrote a short story collection called "Say You're One of Them," all from the perspective of children in Africa -- street kids, trafficked kids, kids in Rwanda during the massacres. Really insightful and compassionate (and disturbing, which it's supposed to be.)

Given the growth patterns in the Catholic church, one of these decades it really will be time for an African pope. On the other hand, guess there hasn't been one from Latin America yet ...

I'll be happy to provide some music for them during the selection, though. One of the all-time greats:
